OK, before anyone corrects me, I just re-read the details
for Drivewire, and Low and Belold, it does what just I was
suggesting, except I need the Nitros ROM kit.
OK, next question, is there anyone out there who is
booting a CoCo-3 with a Nitros ROM and using a PC's
resources via Drivewire? If so, I would like to hear from
I am thinking of setting up a Windows 98 box to be
strictly a CoCo development system and use it's resources
(HDD and CD-ROM) for a CoCo-3. Any thoughts?
